How I replicated my dream Zimmermann catwalk dress?

In 2016 I fell in love with the zimmermann 2016 catwalk collection and ever since have been a follower of the brand's feminine and demure styling. However, on the student budget - I must admit I can not afford Zimmermann prices (*cough* please except student discount). However luckily despite their change of style for SS17 I have found a piece that replicates my dream dress from the collection. So how did I find such a perfect dress?

Hack! Use Pinterest:  

Here is the original style on the catwalk, to achieve the replicated look you need to find; flounces, lace and the high neck. Designer products are filtered down to the high street almost immediately after fashion week, this is why trend forecasting is so important. My tip is to find a particular component in your dream outfit for example 'flounced lapel' and connect from there. I use Pinterest to find the original catwalk image and then click on suggested images surrounding it. Usually, boards and pins that relate to the image surround and shopping sites with connected imagery appear. Pinterest is perfect for finding items based on trends even before they have amassed global reoccurrence - so you can snap up the most recent trend or oldest archived style before you get bored of the fad.
